Former ‘Glee’ star Mark Salling is dead of an apparent suicide.
His death comes weeks after the 35-year-old plead guilty to possession of child pornography.
We’re told his body was found at the Los Angeles River in Sunland … the area where he lived. We do not yet know the manner of death.
The former “Glee” star was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography involving a pre-pubescent minor. Prosecutors say he had 50,000 images of underage children.
Sentencing in the case was set for March. He was expected to get 4 to 7 years in prison as part of a plea deal.
TMZ broke the story … Salling had cut his wrists back in August and it appeared to be a suicide attempt, although his lawyer denied it.
He was a troubled man.
Update: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Mark’s body was found hanging from a tree. Police received a call to do a “welfare check” on Mark and somehow that led them to the baseball field where his body was found.
